How to Manage Threshold Notification Options

Threshold Notifications is a feature that, when turned on, keeps you informed of when your Threshold Heart Rate, Threshold Power or Threshold Speed/Pace may have improved. 

You can select to have TrainingPeaks email you when your threshold(s) have improved and/or have TrainingPeaks auto-apply the calculated changes (with or without email notification).

Please note: that these settings are not available to coached athletes. Please contact your coach about changing these settings.

To Manage Threshold Notification Options

  1. Go to Account Settings>Zones>Threshold Notifications
  2. On: this turns on the Threshold Notification feature
  3. Notify via email: TrainingPeaks will send you an email notifying you that, based on  recent activity files, your threshold(s) have improved. We will not make any updates within your account, however.
  4. Auto-apply: This is a Premium only feature. TrainingPeaks will automatically apply a new threshold, based on recent data, to your account. You will need to update your respective training zones, if desired. For more information on how to do this, click here.
